It seems to me there is far too much assurance in RZ generally that trades somehow automatically produce a given effect. There's a considerable element of uncertainty in all of them. In fact, if this team had not made one of the 50 worst trades of all time within recent history, we wouldn't be having much of the discussion we're having. We certainly wouldn't be talking about where to get an outfielder or another left handed bat.
